Amanda Warrent of Cancer Research UK was presented with a cheque for �1067,26, raised at a Charity event organised by Barbara Vollans held at Anston Cricket Club.

Generous Anston residents have raised more than £1,000 for charity after holding a fun day.

The money was raised in February during a family fundraiser at the cricket club, on Ryton Road.

The event is now in its sixth year - and each year goes from strength to strength.

Amanda Warrent accepted the cheque for £1067.26 on behalf of Cancer Research UK. It was presented by organiser Barbara Vollans in front of the volunteers who ran the stalls and many of the people who supported the event.

The evening ended with a pie and peas supper and games of bingo.

Barbara thanked everyone involved in the event.
